Hello friends. Julia, our Design Team Coordinator from Glue Arts gave us a fun challenge this week. We found a picture on Pinterest that inspired us and then made our projects. The wooden hinged box came from Hobby Lobby and I got it on sale for $3.50. I decided to buy two and am glad I did because I really like them! Check out the Glue Arts Blog for some fun projects and inspiration.
Perma Tac, Glue Gun and Melt Sticks (Glue Arts), Paper, diecuts, stickers (Authentique), Chipboard (Heidi Swapp), Metal tag (Tim Holtz), ribbon, spider and ghosts (making memories), Orchid and Black paint (Plaid), Copper Embossing powder (Ranger), Clear Stamps (Crafty Secrets), wooden box with a hinged door (Hobby Lobby) Tiger Lily Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels)
Here's the Pinterest photo that inspired me
Start with a hinged, wooden box and paint the inside and outside with Wild Orchid and Black paint. Let dry. Mist with Tiger Lily Glimmer Mist
Using embossing powder and heat embossing tool, add some copper powder to random areas on the box.
Using a pigment pad and embossing powder, stamp a few areas of the box with text. Heat emboss.
Use Perma Tac and add paper to some of the inner boxes.
Using Glue Gun and Melt Sticks, glue ribbon in place.
Decorate inside as desired.
